All around the World

Mid of November 2016 the artist Reinhard Wanzke based in Frankfurt, Germany, started his „All around the World in 225 Tagen Tour“. He took with him the art project „Bad Bags/Good Bags“.

Central to this art project are seven white leather handbags which he let manufacture in Vietnam in 2007. He took these bags on his journey in order to exhibit them in seven cities. So every station add a new chapter to the art project. The seven handbags are exhibited on every station of his journey and will be filled with local artists work from the city /country he is staying.

He started the show in Frankfurt with seven artworks. Each filling one handbag. The handbags are closed. So the artworks are not public to the audience only with there picture title. On the next station, in Kampala (Uganda), then the „Frankfurt works“ were visible to the audience. But the works of the artists from Uganda were hidden by the bags.
